Lamination is the process of gluing two or more layers of film, as a result of which we get more robust and strong packages with better barrier properties.
Moreover, on multilayer envelopes we print on the inside – in between layers, which guarantees their stability.
For lamination we have a laminating machine from the best manufacturer in the field – Nordmeccanica, which is used for dry lamination, as it is ideal for envelopes for the food industry. Maximum width of lamination of envelopes is 1100mm.
Lamination is appropriate and most commonly used for packages for salt, legumes (beans, rice, lentils), pretzels, waffles, nuts, chips, frozen products, spices, etc. For different products we use different combinations of film.
MOST FREQUENTLY USED COMBINATIONS:
Most commonly used combinations of laminated film are BOPP+BOPP or BOPP+LDPE, where the choice of combination depends on the client’s requirements.
We can laminate film with different thicknesses, minimum thickness for material is 12µm. For propylene (BOPP) most frequently used combinations are 20+20µm and 20+30µm. For polyethylene (LDPE) minimum thickness is 30µm. Also there are different colors (transparent, white and metalized film). Most widely used combinations can be seen in the table.
